Marin Wildfire Prevention Authority Projects
With the passage of Measure C and the subsequent creation of the Marin Wildfire Prevention Authority (MWPA), Fire Safe Marin (FSM) was able to secure funding to expand its educational program in FY 2020-2021. It includes monthly webinars, production of videos, community workshops, creation and distribution of educational materials including bi-lingual translations, training and support for Fire Mitigation Specialists, organizational support for Firewise sites, print media articles, and reorganization of its website. Fire Safe Marin also received funding to manage a county-wide curbside chipper program, an NOAA weather radio pilot, and a Red Flag Warning sign pilot. In FY 2021-2022, funding was renewed to continue and expand the organization’s educational programming.
